Growing up, my father used to quote Vince Lombardi, "Practice doesn't make perfect: perfect practice makes perfect." I'd roll my eyes...but he (and Vince) is right. Practicing doing something the wrong way just teaches you how to do something incorrectly.
It was a good starting point, but not helpful in practical application. So, I've made an attempt here to put models together that lead to practical application of this concept. Not for football or hockey (as it was used in my case), but for life. Specifically, how to operate as a human being in our world.
I've spent years reading books and researching models. I've thrown this together quickly (only learning of the Sketchbook Project recently), so I've not spent a lot of time in validating any of this. I may be incorrect in relaying some of these models. I make no guarantees you'll have a happier or better life.
The goal is to provide somewhere for you to go when you feel like you need to move forward, but aren't sure what to do or where to start. Starting is the hardest part to anything (a model covered inside), and, hopefully, this will make the hardest part a little easier.
The cool thing is that I still use these and continue to learn and grow. I'm understanding bad decisions, reflecting, adjusting, and moving forward.
These models can help you "perfectly practice" life (to the best that you can). As long as you are alive, life is never "done." There's always enough time to grow...
